Is there an easy way to skip the preboot login once? If I am remotely working on a pc and need tor eboot it will normally sit at the McAfee EE pre boot login and will require me to have anend user present to login. Is there an easy way in ePO to select an individualsystem and have its next reboot skip pre boot login? thanks

You can now use this feature on the client systems.
Is it possible to copy the EpeTemporaryAutoboot.exe to users local and use it for McAfee 5.2.11 Enviroenment ?
I extremely need this solution in my SCCM deployments.
Do you mean adding -Autoboot and removing it at the end of task sequence ? For this case any interruption of deployment can cause autoboot assigned to computer and it is a risky situation
Is there any syntax for boot the machine once? therefore I can run everytime I would like to restart in my Task sequence.
What should be the command like ?
-command:Adduser - Machine:%computername% -user:$AutoBoot$
yes, pretty much - you need to read the scripting guide, and remember you can't put $ or % on a command line without quotation marks around the value.
but no, there's no "boot once only" command with EEPC5, you need to remove the autoboot user once you're finished with it.
